Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
I know all of what you mentioned. But would one prescribe medication based on a one hour visit and past history. To me that's not a full evaluation.
My situation is involved and I as a mother know my child. I don't feel like the doctor knows him as well as I do. While I don't like the thought of medication, I am open to it upon further evaluation and the doctor knowing my child who has some speech and languague difficulties and phrases things one way, while meaning something different another way, sometimes. Would you consult with counselors and neuropsychologists as well before making a determination, knowing the child has these difficulties.
I know and that's fine. I appreciate just knowing one would sometimes review all evaluations before making a final decision. Thank you and have a good day. I will accept your answer.
